More than just being quick, PUMA running shoes aims to achieve one thing: to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. As a world-renowned sports brand, PUMA has been creating, developing and designing quality sports apparel and footwear for all kinds of sports, from football to motorsport and golf, for more than seven decades.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
In 1919, the Dassler Brothers started their shoe factory in their parents’ home, which grew and evolved into the world-renowned PUMA today. Ever since Jesse Owens sported Dassler spikes and won four gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games, the brand had gained notoriety. More athletes were seen wearing PUMA shoes and apparel in subsequent world sporting events, crafting a global reputation for the brand.
Level Up On The Playing Field
PUMA put the fun in functionality by supplying a wide selection of well-designed sports apparel fit for sports and leisure activities. From running shoes for track and field to footwear for golf, PUMA boasts a range of comfortable sports apparel and equipment to help you perform on the playing field while letting you incorporate sports into your lifestyle with stylish sportswear that can be worn anywhere.
PUMA’s Business Philosophy
PUMA chooses to push for change and pave the way with fashion and sportswear. As a business that incorporates sustainability into its operations, PUMA’s 10FOR25 sustainability strategy supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals focusing on ten key sustainability areas by working closely with stakeholders.
PUMA running shoes thrives on the culture of being first and delivering performance innovations to push athletes to greater heights. In 1968, the Brush Spike that featured Velcro™ on performance footwear was designed for the first time. The tiny rows of spikes on the shoes helped athletes maximise traction and minimised resistance, which worked well for athletes at the 1968 Olympic Trials.
Turning Intent Into Action
Racial and social imbalances have led to skewed criminal justice systems — this is why PUMA supports organisations like REFORM Alliance and the ACLU to advocate for reforms to a broken system. PUMA takes a firm stance against any form of societal injustice, discrimination and inequality and aims to support good causes for a better society.
